Great opportunity for an eager employee, but too much bureaucracy to move things along

I worked at Sun Microsystems

Pros

Wealth of resources, telecommuting and flex office policy means you can work from anywhere, lots of opportunities for learning and taking on extra responsibilities.

Cons

The resources are burdened with bureaucracy, because so many people telecommute, the buildings feel ghostly and you never know where people are on a given day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not sure how things have changed since the Oracle acquisition, but quicker turn around times for inter department tasks would have been helpful.

    I worked at Sun Microsystems

    Pros

    > Genuine respect for employees
    > Focussed roles - Developers only develop features, they don't fix customer bugs. Sustenance takes care of that.
    > Incredible technologies - way too much to learn
    > Extremely capable senior management
    > Never pressured for time, and mentored well

    Cons

    > Company needed more focus on how to earn money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish Sun till existed and wasn't sold away. I hope the Sun culture is still preserved after the transition to Oracle.
